As discussed before, (V)PMULLD has 10 cycles latency on Haswell and 11
cycles on Silvermont/Avoton, as opposed to 5 cycles for other multiply
instructions on the same CPUs.  But I guess this may be acceptable, if
this specific approach has other advantages over possible alternatives.
On most other CPUs, (V)PMULLD is fast.

In yescrypt, I chose to avoid the need for this instruction, though,
opting to rely on 32x32->64 multiplies instead, which is (V)PMULUDQ
(but twice fewer of these fit per vector).
